There’s something to be said for finding
a dermatology practice that reminds you of the good old days of family
healthcare — where the atmosphere is warm and friendly, and patient-centered
care is the name of the game.
Then there are the providers who
treat skin conditions for patients of any age, love building personal
relationships, and can be found out and about in the communities they serve.
That’s the environment Signature Dermatology and Aesthetics has developed at
each of its six locations throughout Dallas-Fort Worth, including a local
office right here in Flower Mound.

Simply put,
there’s no better team of compassionate professionals teaming up to cover all
their patients’ needs, including the likes of board certified dermatologists
Caitlin Farmer, Bryan Selkin, Ramya Kollipara, David Meyer, and long-time
physician assistant, Lauren Hughes.

“I have the
honor of working with some of the best doctors around, but what really stands
out about us are our patient care values,” Hughes said. “It’s about caring
for people and entire families.”

Dr. Farmer
added, “That’s one thing we pride ourselves on: We want our patients to have
the ultimate patient experience. We care about our patients, and we’re
compassionate about their needs.”

Everything
Under One Roof

Signature
Dermatology and Aesthetics is a full-service dermatology practice that
specializes in all aspects of medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology.
That
means they treat all forms of simple to complex skin
conditions and disorders, from eczema and psoriasis to acne, leg veins, and
skin cancer, without having to refer their patients to outside providers. For
some types and locations of skin cancer, options such as Mohs surgery, which
offers the highest cure rates, can be done in house. They also offer
non-surgical treatments of skin cancer, including superficial radiation
therapy that delivers a precise, calibrated dose of radiation that destroys
non-melanoma skin cancer cells without damaging healthy surrounding tissue.
There is no pain, cutting or stitching, scars, or need for plastic
surgery.

The practice is one of the centers in DFW
that offers light treatments, which avoid the side effects of systemic
medications for conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and vitiligo.
Specialists in the group can perform liposuction for body contouring and
sclerotherapy for leg veins, and they have numerous lasers for skin
rejuvenation and skin imperfections such as scars. Signature Dermatology
offers the newest technology for those wanting to avoid oral medications for
acne such as TheraclearX and has a very experienced support
staff.

A
Compassionate Team

Dr. Farmer has a lengthy history with the
Flower Mound location and recently returned after having her beautiful
daughter, Ellie. She attended Duke University to obtain her biomedical
engineering undergraduate degree. Following graduation, she worked as a
mechanical engineer designing missile-launching tanks before deciding to
pursue a different career path in medicine. She earned her medical degree
from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, where she
remained for her internal medicine internship. She completed her residency in
Detroit at Henry Ford Hospital, where she had the opportunity to work with
leaders in the fields of pigmentary skin disorders, phototherapy, follicular
disorders, and complex medical dermatology.

Dr. Selkin graduated as Chief Educational Resident
and was fellowship-trained in clinical trials in dermatology from Harvard. He
specializes in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology. He has been the
recipient of numerous awards such as Living Magazine Best Dermatologist, D
Magazine Best for over 10 years, Texas Super Doctor, and U.S. House of
Representatives Congressional recognition for his outstanding patient care
for over 15 years in the DFW region. 

Dr. Kollipara earned a Doctor of Medicine
from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. She then
completed an internship in internal medicine at the University of
Colorado-Denver, a clinical research fellowship in Houston, and her
dermatology residency at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. She is
currently the head of the cosmetic dermatology and skin rejuvenation program
at Signature Dermatology and sees patients at the Plano
location.

Dr. Meyer earned his medical degree and
completed his residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in
San Antonio. He completed an internship at Yale School of
Medicine.

Hometown
Girl Serving Her Community

Dr. Farmer isn’t the only familiar face in
Flower Mound. Hughes grew up playing on softball fields in and around North
Texas. She was a star pitcher for the Flower Mound Lady Jaguars, and by the
time her senior year rolled around, the team was primed to compete for a
state title. Sadly for Hughes, a devastating leg injury sidelined her before
the playoffs. The injury could have ended her athletic career for good had it
not been for a wonderful team of doctors. She went on to play college
softball at North Central Texas College in Gainesville, but the injury and
her caring team of doctors opened her eyes to a future career in
medicine.

Experiencing for herself how well her doctors
treated her planted an important seed.

After spending a few years shadowing doctors
in multiple disciplines, Hughes chose dermatology. She earned her Bachelor of
Science from Texas A&M, then returned to Dallas and obtained her Master
of Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Texas Southwestern
Medical Center before being hired by the company that would ultimately become
Signature Dermatology in 2012. She and her husband have four kids and have
been foster parents since 2017.

“It’s an honor to be from this community,”
Hughes said. “All of us care so deeply, and our patients feel that. I get to
treat generations of families, and then they send their friends. I love that
they trust me to visit with and care for the most valuable people in their
lives.”
